After waiting almost two years for the third season of Sherlock, its January 19th premiere is so close, you can almost touch it. But if it seems excruciating to wait those few more weeks, the BBC has released a 7-minute prequel episode that shows Inspector Lestrade (Rupert Graves) following up on rumored sightings of the thought-to-be deceased mastermind Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch). Watson (Martin Freeman) is in there too, watching and thinking about his partner. The show comes back on PBS in the United States on January 19, but watch the prequel mini-episode now.

That headstone is a lie, as we all know, but the opening episode of Sherlock, which kicks off the show’s third season, is all about catching the rest of the world up to the fact that Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) did not die at the end of the second season. A new teaser for the season opener kicks off with a shot of that headstone, then gives us a bit of mopey Watson (Martin Freeman) before starting to get the word out that this new season won’t be centered around a ghost.

We’ve known that the first episode of the third season of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, would deal with the fact that no one around Sherlock yet knows that he survived the end of season two. That’s enough to give us a general idea of what’s in store from at least some of the premiere when it airs on Sunday, January 19th on PBS, and a first teaser trailer has given us a good peek, too.
Now BBCOne has released a new image that has a bit of Edward Hopper’s ‘Nighthawks’ in it. Check out that pic below. Read More »

Just over a week ago at Comic Con we got a peek at this middle of the third season of Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman. We also learned a bit about how the season begins.

The BBC and PBS Masterpiece series Sherlock was the highlight of a panel at Comic Con today, with producers Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat, and Sue Vertue in attendance. Not in the house were the show’s stars, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, because they are occupied with finishing up The Hobbit and filming the third season of Sherlock. But the two actors were showcased in a video introduction to the panel — greeted with Twilight panel-worthy screams from the audience — in which Cumberbatch “explained” just how Sherlock made it out of the end of season two.
The panel that followed was light on news but very entertaining, as Matiss, Moffat, and Vertue evaded questions and offered up a few observations about making the show, all the way through the nearly-complete third season. You can watch the actors’ video intro below, after which we’ll run down a few panel highlights. Needless to say there are some mild spoilers for the end of the second season below, and anyone who wants to go into the thitd season cold should watch the video below, but skip the panel recap.

And so it begins. The schedule for Wednesday night and Thursday at San Diego Comic Con 2013 has been revealed kicking off four days of scheduling madness. There are several early highlights on what’s traditionally the second slowest day of the Con, but one standout is a Hall H conversation between Alfonso Cuaron, Marc Webb and Edgar Wright. Webb and Wright’s movies (The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and The World’s End) are already confirmed for the convention, but this all but solidifies Gravity will be there too.
On the movie side of things there’s also Europa Report, Ender’s Game, Divergent and Terry Gilliam’s Zero Theorum. On the TV side, there’s Dexter, The X-Files and Sherlock. And that’s only a small sampling. Below, check out the full schedule as well as some highlights. Read More »
Yesterday the news came out that the third season of BBC’s Sherlock is about to go into production, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman reprising their lead roles as modern day versions of Sherlock Holmes and John Watson.
There was some question as to whether the third season might be the show’s last. Scheduling the long shoot is difficult, as each of the three episodes per season is basically structured like a mini-movie, and Cumberbatch and Freeman are increasingly busy with movie careers.
But now Cumberbatch has confirmed that a fourth season is planned. Read More »
